Bill Cowher Among 3 Steelers Named Finalists for Pro Football Hall of Fame



Bill Cowher headlines a group of three Steelers who were named finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Cowher, fellow coach Buddy Parker and safety Donnie Shell are among the 38 finalists.

Cowher won 161 games (including the playoffs) as Steelers head coach from 1992 to 2006. The Steelers reached the playoffs 10 times, won 8 division titles and Super Bowl XL under Cowher.

Long before Cowher began his NFL journey, Buddy Parker won 51 games as Steelers coach from 1957 to 1964. Shell, who won 4 Super Bowls as a key member of Pittsburgh’s “Steel Curtain” defense in the 1970’s, finished his career with 51 interceptions, which is the most by any strong safety.
